24th March 2006 | Issue 537 - GAUL TO ARMS - Last Saturday over a million took to the streets across France, coming just two days after 300,000 had done the same nationally. This week 70 campuses have been partially or totally shut down and some 800 high schools are also striking. In some places the youth of the suburbs whose rioting spread across the country last October (see SchNEWS 520) have joined forces with students.

Water privatisation

17th March 2006 | Issue 536 - WATER TORTURE - Privatisation leaves us high and dry...

Corporations have to splash out billions every year to persuade us to buy unneeded crap. But no such problems exist when they have a grip on more essential, life-sustaining, natural resources, like water.

10th March 2006 | Issue 535 - PIGS MIGHT LIE - Sussex police have shot themselves in the foot with unerring aim again after charges were dropped against eight activists relating to a mass demo outside Brighton bomb-builders EDO MBM on May 31st last year. Three of the defendants were up for the “Go directly to jail” offence of ‘assault police’, and others for Section 5 and obstruction of the Highway. The charges were formally dropped on Thursday afternoon, and a CPS statement claimed that as the injunction had now effectively collapsed it was ‘no longer in the public interest’ to continue the prosecutions.

3rd February 2006 | Issue 530 - CHARITY BALLS - As Neo-Labour turns to the 'third sector' - the voluntary sector - to do the social work it won't pay for.

"An alliance of neo-labour ideologues and ambitious managers in the voluntary sector are embarking on a process that will eventually return social welfare to the 19th century with private businesses making money out of poverty... and many bigger charities now see privatisation as a way of increasing their own power and influence."

Respect to the underage ASBO sin-bin massive

13th Jan 2006 | Issue 527 - ‘NUFF RESPECT - Big up the respec’ agenda - ASBO massive in da house. The Respect agenda – what’s it all about? Could it be an attempt to head off the Tories in the headlong rush to the right? In fact it’s a cobbled together manifesto of rehashed ideas which exposes the neo-Labour project as the kneejerk crackdown conservatism it actually is.

If the Romans used nuclear power....
click for bigger image

25th November 2005 | Issue 522 - OVER-REACTING - Just when you thought it could get no worse, Neo Labour goes nuclear. The whispering campaign around the push for nuclear power has been gaining momentum since last year. Until then Britain’s nuclear programme seemed to have been largely written off as the costly and dangerous failure it was. Nobody even knows how to safely decommission the power stations already built or store the radioactive waste already produced. Britain’s nuclear power programme was historically dogged with safety issues, radioactive contamination and massive overspend.

18th November 2005 | Issue 521 - LOOSING THEIR FACULTIES - UK Universities are increasingly turning to the corporate sector, including the arms industry, to sustain themselves financially. Currently 67 UK universities hold significant investments in arms companies, and in return arms companies are investing in universities, which involves sponsoring departments and research.
